New York, New York, USA
The iconic Empire State Building’s art deco style is typical of pre–World War II architecture in New York. The façade is covered with Indiana limestone panels and features 200,000 cubic feet (5,700 m3) of limestone and granite, ten million bricks and 730 short tons (650 long tons) of aluminum and stainless steel. The building also contains 6,514 windows, including Kawneer’s TR-9000 Windows.
